This year, from January to May the excise tax earmarked for schools brought in $13.6 million; tThe money from the excise tax has grown to $3.5 million in May from $2.5 million in March. The tax brought in just $13.3 million in all of 2014. The jump is partly because there are more marijuana stores and partly because shops benefited from a one-time tax-exempt transfer.How many other States will be attracted by the dollar signs and not broken ideology?

Is this a new trend? It doesn't seem as though corporate/consumer America is in any hurry to changeWorkforce habits. But it is nice to see that some significant names in the game realize the importance of being good employers rather then lining the pockets of already fat wallets to the tune of billions of dollars.

The latter is in fact quite crucial and three quarters into the year we are noticing a revenue spike in the state coffers. In fax schools are benefiting, Among other state run organizations, from the increased revenue in pot sales.
The cost savings and increase revenue you on the taxation of marijuana sales, is having a huge impact on Colorado's revenue streams. It seems as though everyone is smoking yet but also everyone is now contributing with their dollars. Taxation has now demonstrated that the state can not only benefit but everyone else benefits as well.
The question is how many other states are going to follow suit and get on the gravy train of marijuana taxation? This is largely a cultural question on America's war against drugs, making marijuana legal in many ways flies in the face of the conservative agenda witches dominant in over half the states. At the end of the day it's going to be the mighty dollar best ways public opinion rather than vain ideology.

If Mitt Romney gets in power then he'll want to pass a bill permitting all planes to have powered windows in first class.
Was he serious? You have to believe he had to be joking when he remarked that his plane could use some open windows...... At least McCain had a plan, too bad he picked the wrong running mate.
